William Richardson (1743-1814) was a Scottish classicist and literary scholar. His talent for languages led to employment as a tutor to Lord Charles Cathcart’s two sons. When Cathcart was appointed ambassador to Russia in 1768, Richardson travelled to Russia with the family. During these travels he described Russia through a series of letters, published in 1784 under the title Anecdotes of the Russian Empire.
